UNION – Premiere Stages at Kean University will kick off its 2009 summer season with an interactive staged reading of Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods, a new play by Tammy Ryan, at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27 and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 28.
The script was selected as part of the Premiere Stages Play Festival, a program created to nurture emerging dramatists in New Jersey and the greater metropolitan area. In the play, Gabriel, an optimistic and hardworking “Lost Boy” from Sudan meets Christine, a suburban mother in need of adventure. After an unlikely friendship blooms between the two, they forge an unbreakable bond that forever changes them.
Murphy-Dunn Theatre, located in Vaughn-Eames Hall on the main campus, will host the readings. Tickets are free.
The Staged Reading initiative provides plays with intensive development in preparation for full production. Following each reading, audience members will have an opportunity to share their views with the playwright and cast.
“The Staged Reading provides audiences with the unique experience of being involved in the birth of a new play. In the intimate discussions that follow, patrons listen and contribute,” said John Wooten, Producing Artistic Director of Premiere Stages.
